PHOTO-OPTICS--A SURVEY TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF OFFERING A JUNIOR COLLEGE PROGRAM FOR PHOTO-OPTICS INSTRUMENTATION TECHNICIANS.
COOPER, RICHARD
IN ORDER TO DETERMINE CALIFORNIA'S NEEDS FOR TRAINING OF PHOTO-OPTICS INSTRUMENTATION TECHNICIANS, PERSONAL INTERVIEWS WERE CONDUCTED IN 100 FIRMS AND AGENCIES MANUFACTURING OR USING SUCH EQUIPMENT. IT WAS DETERMINED THAT THE TRAINING NEEDED COULD SUITABLY BE PROVIDED AT THE JUNIOR COLLEGE LEVEL AND THAT COSTS WOULD NOT BE PROHIBITIVE. SPECIFIC SUBJECT AREAS REQUIRED FOR TRAINING INCLUDE MATHEMATICS THROUGH TRIGONOMETRY, DRAFTING, PHYSICS, OPTICS, PHOTO PROCESSING, BASIC ELECTRONICS, AND MECHANICAL ASSEMBLY, PLUS ENGLISH, COMMUNICATION, AND REPORT WRITING. EMPLOYMENT POSITIONS ARE ESTIMATED AT 450 IN THE STATE, WITH OVER 600 ADDITIONAL NEEDED IN THE NEXT 5 YEARS. COOPERATIVE WORK-STUDY PROGRAMS WERE APPROVED BY THE INTERVIEWER. LOS ANGELES, CITRUS-PASADENA, AND FOOTHILL-SAN MATEO AREAS WERE IDENTIFIED AS SUITABLE FOR SUCH PROGRAMS. INCLUDED ARE DETAILED DISCUSSIONS, A BIBLIOGRAPHY, JOB DESCRIPTIONS, AND INFORMATION AS TO CURRENT OFFERINGS IN RELATED FIELDS. (WO)
